Estimates are presented by source every February, and updated every March to include estimates by end-user and fuel type and are thus reallocated in accordance with where the end-use activity occurred. This reallocation of emissions is based on a modelling process: for example, all the CO2 produced by a power station is allocated to the power station when reporting on a source basis. But when applying the end-user method, these emissions are reallocated to the users of this electricity, such as domestic homes or large industrial users.
For the purposes of reporting, greenhouse gas emissions are allocated to a small number of broad, high level sectors as follows: energy supply; business; transport; public; residential; agriculture; industrial processes, waste management; land use and forestry.
